ITA National Indoors: Draw

HOUSTON -- The 14th-ranked Tennessee Volunteers will face third-ranked Southern California to open the ITA National Team Indoor Championships on Friday in Houston.

The Vols (9-1) play the Trojans at 4 p.m. Eastern at the Downtown Club at the Met. The winner advances to Saturday's quarterfinals against either Texas A&M or Baylor.

Tennessee reached the finals of the ITA National Indoors in 2010 and 2011. The team ended its 2013 tournament stay on a high note, defeating Texas A&M in a 4-3 thriller in consolation.

The new ITA national individual rankings were also released Tuesday.

Juniors Mikelis Libietis and Hunter Reese retained their No. 1 national ranking in doubles. The Vols' ace pair is 20-2 this season and have been ranked at the top of college tennis all year.

Reese, though off to a 7-0 start this spring, slipped one spot to No. 17 in the rankings. He is 19-6 this year. Libietis is now ranked 45th in singles. He stopped a three-match losing streak with a victory over No. 20 Romain Bogaerts of Wake Forest on Sunday.
